Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 25 April 2022:
Today was a beautiful day to be out at sea, with little wind and a lot of sunshine. Our trips today were lucky to have seen some sightings of our Cape Fur Seals, the endangered African penguin on Dyer Island as well as swimming around the bay. Our first trip had a beautiful encounter with some humpback dolphins just before we arrived back at the harbour while our second trip had a great sighting of a Bryde’s whale.
